What's in week one?

Thank you for joining us!

This week we will begin to unpack why the accurate teaching of Black British History in a non tokenistic way across all subjects is important for young people and society as a whole.

You will explore the importance of inclusive and active learning in the classroom for all students. You will understand and begin to think about how to embed Black British history into your day to day teaching by learning about Black British History and creating then sharing your own embedded lesson plan.

We will also explore ways in which you can embed arts-based practices into your lessons and how this can be beneficial for learning and teaching on Black British History.
